Fourth of July Festival Planned

lex 4th july festLEXINGTON, Ky. (6/19/13)—Independence Day is just around the corner! Instead of taking the family out of town for the holiday, join in on the fun at Lexington’s annual Fourth Of July Festival beginning July 2.

“This is our favorite celebration of the year,” Mayor Jim Gray said. “We’re ready to welcome everyone downtown to a week of patriotism and fun!”

The festival has something for every one of all ages to enjoy.

“Great food, great music, great fireworks, and a great parade,” Fourth Of July Festival Chair Donna Moloney said. “Bring your family and friends!”

On Tuesday, July 2, the Great American Pie Contest and Ice Cream Social, hosted by Alltech, will start at noon in the Fifth-Third Pavilion in Cheapside Park

Wednesday, July 3 beginning at 8 p.m. a free patriotic concert will be held to get you ready for the big day! On the lawn of Old Morrison at Transylvania University, the Lexington Philharmonic Orchestra and the Lexington Singers will be performing.

On July 4, the day starts out with the Bluegrass 10,000. This will mark the 37th year of the foot race. Online registration for the race ends on June 29!

By 9 a.m. on the 4th the street festival and music will begin. Downtown Lexington will be transformed and will be filled with sights, sounds and smells of the street festival and will feature dozens of arts and crafts, food and beverages, and commercial vendors. At 2 p.m., one of Lexington’s largest parades will begin, starting at Main Street and ending at Broadway.

At 10 p.m. fireworks will be on display over downtown to finish off the celebration.

It’s a festival that you do not want to miss, and fun for all ages. Also in Lexington that week is Thursday Night Live and Red, White and Boom. The Lexington Fourth of July Festival is produced by Downtown Lexington Corporation and the city. For more information visit www.downtownlex.com/2013-fourth-of-july-festival
